What you can do in this project:

  • The members will learn the basics of weaving.
  • They have the opportunity to weave a spoked basket, a plaited basket and a ribbed basket.
  • They will learn how to follow a pattern. They will be shown how to adapt a pattern for the needs of their basket.

Grades: It’s recommended that the member be at least 10 years of age and is ready to start working independently with guidance.

Cost: Project expenses vary depending on the size of the basket and type of handle used. Most baskets will be less than $20.
